This is a tragic story out of Utah but also a look into the weird mental
thinking of some religious extremists in our own country,

Man Jumped From Truck Following
November 12th, 2005 @ 9:21pm
(KSL News) Police now say an argument caused a 21-year-old man to
jump from a moving truck in South Jordan.
Tyler Poulson was riding with his brothers last night when he became
offended by one of them using profanity. Poulson, who recently returned from
an LDS mission, threatened to get out of the truck if he continued.
One of the men, not thinking he would, told Poulson to.
Earlier police said the car was going about 35 miles an hour when Poulson
opened the door and jumped. He was pronounced dead on scene.
This kind of mentality is exactly why people look at some of the religious
zealots as extremists. Perhaps this guy thought because he was doing something
in the name of God he would now be invincible. Guess God pulled a quick one on
this poor guy.
